Step 1: Remove Dry Particulates
First, we microfiber dust or vacuum dust to remove all dry particulates off the floor. This prepares the surface for deeper cleaning.
Step 2: Scrubbing
The primary reason that wood floors need to be cleaned is the accumulation of grease and grime which becomes more embedded in the surface of the floor over time. We apply a variety of professional grade wood floor cleaning products and scrub it in with a heavy duty buffer. The combination of a variety of products and the right equipment is no match for at home mops like a swiffer, wet jet, etc. This is one of the benefits of using our professional Portland hardwood floor cleaning services.
Step 3: Extraction
An “Auto Scrubber” uses a vacuum to suck cleaning solution up and lightly rinse away any solution so there’s no residue remaining. Removing excess cleaning solution is crucial and something not done by traditional mops. This ensures your floors have been properly cleaned, thoroughly rinsed, and almost dry!
Step 4: Dry
Now that your wood is clean we need to get it dry as quickly as possible. To do this we use absorbing cotton pads on a buffer to remove any excess moisture and residual dirt. Fans are then used to further speed up the drying process.
Step 5: Protect
Want your hardwood to have a glossy look or maybe you prefer a more matte look? We offer an optional variety of floor finishes that will help protect your freshly cleaned floors and promote their natural beauty. We use professional hardwood floor protector products that do not contain waxes or cause rapid resoiling like many of that hardware store based home remedies. Our products are applied between 2-3x and will help make your floors truly sparkle.
